Office 365 login problems - I keep getting asked to log into Office 365. What should I do?

If you are using multiple different Office 365 tenants you have properly seen below login screen way too many times.
(sorry for the Danish screenshots)
Every day I spend a lot of time finding passwords and login information to different tenants.
To overcome this problem and have a very easy way to login to all tenants simultaneously I found a cool feature in Google Chrome today.
Profiles is here to save you
Create a profile for each tenant and use these profiles when you want access the tenants.
1. Start Google Chrome
2. Go to Settings
3. Scroll down to persons/users and add a profile for each tenant.

(I have a profile for a tenant called 365 and one for a tenant called DevProj)
3. Give the profiles a cool icon like the Ninja or the Flower.
4. Now right-click the default profile and select one of your new profiles.
5. Login, for the last time, to the tenant.
(do not forget to check the Remember Me checkbox)
Now you are always remembered in this profile.
If you want to go to another tenant, just switch profile and you are in.

Even better, you can also set the tenant as the start page for each profile.
When logged in with your tenant profile, go to settings and type the URL for the tenant.

Sharepoint 2013 - Fullscreen mode/hide quick launch

If you want to hide the quick launch on a SharePoint page or web part page in 2013 you could of cause use CSS scripts as in 2010.
But as a new thing in 2013 the user have the possibility to click on full screen mode. so why not load your page in this mode and then the user can choose to exit the mode if he prefers.

Add a content editor webpart to your page and click on Edit HTML from the ribbon.
Add the following code:

<script type="text/javascript">
window.onload = function()
{
  SetFullScreenMode(true);
}
</script>

Install DLL in GAC - Windows 2008/2012 (Using Powershell, No GacUtil.exe)

If you want to install a DLL in the GAC and do not have the GACUtil.exe available. Powershell is properly the easiest way to procede.

Before Powershell you would properly just drag the DLL file into the C:\Windows\Assembly but this option is usually not available anymore.

Powershell - Add DLL to GAC So to install a DLL file in the GAC simply execute the below Powershell script. Remember you migth want to run the Powershell prompt as an administrator.
[System.Reflection.Assembly]::Load("System.EnterpriseServices, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a")$publish=New-ObjectSystem.EnterpriseServices.Internal.Publish$publish.GacInstall("c:\temp\MyDllFile.dll")iisreset
The first line adds a reference to the assembly we need to be able to mange the GAC.
The second and third lines retrives the GAC object and publish a new DLL file to it.
The last line resets the Internet Information Services. This is only needed if your DLL file is used in a websi…
